This was such a hard thing to paint, in so many ways! First the architecture of the reamer. Then I used a board with a lot of smooth 'ground', which actually was slick, and difficult to paint on- you can see the ridges where the sanding didn't go down far enough. I had to practically sculpt the paint on. Didn't like doing it, I was sweating like Hurley (hey, LOST fans!) trying to get the paint not to slide into other colors. I thought this reamer was so cool till I saw one yesterday at Crate & Barrel for half the price. I hate that!
Another awesome piece! I was thinking the other day that I should do a still life....lol.... but I couldn't think of anything to paint...lol. You have an endless stream of ideas.... I obviously have none!! : )ReplyDelete
Kelley, Great job! I love the vanilla bottle! How you can paint, the tiny detail of the label, amazes me! Just brilliant!ReplyDelete
i think the surface looks good- hard to see any struggling here..the color on the lemons is great!..did you make a lemon pound cake?ReplyDelete
I just like this painting because the scene captures an everyday slice of life in the kitchen.
Nice job on the vanilla label too!
I love how you did the vanilla extract bottle. You always do such a wonderful job on labels. It's a great hint of a kitchen chef.ReplyDelete
